Illinois Pathways to Health is an initiative designed to connect people who are interested in bettering their health and well-being with programs that are proven to do just that.
We believe a sustainable, integrated evidence-based health promotion network will improve access to valuable community-based health education. The network will support clinical-community linkages bridging gaps in public health prevention strategies. Illinois Pathways to Health will connect nationally recognized evidence based interventions/programs known to enhance the physical and psychological well-being to participants throughout Illinois.
What are “evidence-based” programs?
Evidence-based programs are developed and verified by researchers to promote self-management of chronic health conditions (such as diabetes and chronic pain), prevent falls, and foster individual well-being. Illinois Pathway to Health offers evidence-based programs for:
- Prevent Falls
- Live Well/ Take Charge
- Caregiver Support
IL Pathways to Health partnerships ensure the quality, coordination and local delivery of ILPTH programs. Our partners include healthcare providers, health systems, housing providers, and community based organizations, all dedicated to improving the health of the communities we serve — together.
